Bournemouth manager Howe filled with 'mixed emotions' after West Ham draw

Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe said his side's 3-3 draw with West Ham United brought out a "mixture of emotions."

The Cherries were up 2-1 before Asmir Begovic gifted Hammers winger Marko Arnautovic with two goals in the last ten minutes.

But Callum Wilson popped up in injury time to score a controversial equaliser.

"I don't know where to start. A total mixture of emotions and I felt like the game was ours at 2-1, we had so many chances to make it three and put it to bed but we didn't take them," he told Sky Sports.

"Then we find ourselves 3-2 down and the lads did really well to get a point in the end. I'm very pleased with how we played today, we were much more like ourselves with a lot of goal-mouth action and a lot of shots. I think we could have scored five or six today.

"We gave ourselves a mountain to climb [after James Collins' seventh minute goal]. We talked about our game plan and what we wanted to do and that was certainly the furthest thing from our minds.

"It gave us a long way to get back into the match but I thought the players were excellent in their response to it and for the majority of the game, I was ever so pleased with the performance."
